Don't forget, tonight is 31-cent scoop night at Baskin-Robbins! I can't wait to get my pink bubblegum ice cream (I hope it's in season now, if not I will have to settle for mint chocolate chip!).
For all the details, check out my original post here!

It's almost hurricane season, and with hurricane season we also see a larger outbreak of severe thunderstorms. Is your pet protected if they get separated from you? We have microchips in our pets, but learned recently that not every shelter or vet's office can read these chips. In addition, they have the potential to move within your pet's muscle tissue so they would not be picked up during a typical scan. I can across these Together Tags while looking for an alternate solution for our pet's identities in case they become lost during a storm or when traveling!
Go to Together Tag and read about the process for yourself, but I really loved that you enrolled online and could update at any time for no additional charge! In addition to receiving a tag for each of your pets with unique identification numbers, your profile and pet's photos are saved online so you aren't struggling to find a picture following a disaster.
Some of the great features:
* A one-time fee of $24.95 covers your cat or dog for life. Simply add profile information to activate your account. Special discount for families with 3 or more pets! Seem like a lot? One in three pets will get lost during their lifetime, and sadly many never make it back home! It's amazing how quickly a pet can get away from you! Also, for every tag purchased, $5 is donated to the American Red Cross!
* Disaster-proof tags - this is why they were developed, so they should withstand most natural disasters, assuming your pet's collar is on well!
* As soon as you report your pet missing, a network of over 5,000 shelters is notified that your pet is missing!
Please note: This is not a paid advertisement for this service, I just thought these were really great and wanted to share them with you!

I was feeling like I was cut off from the rest of the world this week while at a conference in Norfolk, VA.
I still haven't figured out why you have to pay for internet service as hotels get more expensive. We were staying at the Marriott, and they wanted $10 a day for internet service that, at most, was only decent. I just couldn't justify spending that much extra per day...they were already charging $26 per day in parking - ugh...two weeks ago I stayed at a La Quinta and had great FREE internet access and free parking...just doesn't make sense! I guess if you have a lot of money, you think that when you spend more money you must be getting something that's better than if it was free.
Personally, I think I prefer a free breakfast, free parking, free internet, and cheaper items at the hotel gift shop when you just need a soda! Finally home, and am playing catch up from five days without internet service! Look for some great posts coming up this weekend!

Visit Lowe's Build and Grow website to sign your kids up for these two great upcoming projects! Remember, even if you don't have a place to put them it is really about the together time! I know my son loves going to "woahs" (he's 2) and helping make these projects. We don't keep them all, but he is definitely making memories...even if it is just of wearing a cool apron and safety goggles! Plus he gets to give some really cool handmade gifts every once in awhile!
April 25: 10-11AM - Hang Glider
May 9: 10-11AM - Planter Box (perfect for Mother's Day)
Remember, these workshops are completely FREE (assuming you don't go aisle wandering while you are there)! Lowe's provides the tools and supplies, and you get to leave with a neat handmade project!

Okay, I know everyone loves a great handbag and you can never have enough (or is that just me and my handbag addiction?)! The winner of this giveaway will receive a gorgeous lime green Lexi bag from Big Buddha handbags!
The Big Buddha Lime Green Lexi Handbag is made of a faux patent leather. It has multiple inside pockets and magnetic snap closure or zipper closure depending on what look you want. The bag also has silver hardware with buckle detailing and measures 18" X 14" X 6". Big Buddha handbags are truly beautiful and trendy handbags. The bags are leather free, but feel so soft and definitely have the look of leather in gorgeous bright colors that are just perfect for Spring and Summer!
Big Buddha handbags are starting to show up everywhere eventhough Jeremy Bassan only started the line out of his dorm room a little over five years ago. You might have to do a little searching online to find somewhere to purchase one locally if you don't want to shop online, but they are truly everywhere after being featured on QVC, The View and multiple magazines! If you live in Englewood, NJ, a Big Buddha store just opened up! Go and check it out and let me know what you think! I will surely be jealous!
To enter this giveaway (US Shipping Addresses Only) (Note: If you don't follow the rules, then your entry doesn't count - and they're easy rules):
1) Leave me a comment letting me know what your favorite Big Buddha handbag is from the Spring 2009 collection and what color you would pick(other than the Lexi)! Personally, I love the Kelly bag in Fuchsia - a guilty pleasure for sure! Make sure your e-mail address is easy to find!
2) To get a second entry, subscribe to my blog or become a follower! Leave a second comment letting me know you subscribed or became a follower. If you already subscribe or follow, then leave me a comment letting me know that!
3) For a third entry, post a unique blog about this contest and come back and leave me a link to your blog!
There are a maximum of three entries per person! Good luck! This contest will end on May 4, 2009 at approximately 9:00PM Central. A winner will be chosen at random, and e-mailed shortly after their name is chosen! I will also post the name of the winner within this giveaway posting. The winner will have 48 hours to e-mail me back with their contact information, or a new winner will be drawn. Please note that this giveaway has been extended to May 4 since I have been too sick to do much of anything! This giveaway has ended! Thanks for visiting!
If you haven't checked out Perpetual Kid yet, you really should! They have some really cute gift ideas, and although I haven't had much time to look around there are already a few items in my shopping cart!
This will be the perfect gift for my dad for Father's Day! I can't even count the number of times we heard Don't Make Me Stop This Car on the way to visit the grandparents!
I also have to say that this New Parent's notepad will come in handy for the many friends we know having their first kids this year! I can't even explain all those things we left behind the first few times we ventured out of the house after our first son was born!
I don't think I have to say anything to those that have short hair dogs with this mug!
And well, because I truly am a nerd - I love this bag! Now Ryan, don't make fun of me when I walk in with this one someday at work! It's even made from 95% post consumer products!
And last, but definitely not least, because I still have a lots of browsing left to do...I love this true mommy necklace for the days when sometimes you feel like all you do is pick cheerios up from the floor, off the sofa, in the car seats, and somehow permanently attached to the forehead of your 10-month old!
It's been over two weeks and we are still waiting on the results of the bloodwork to come back! All the biopsies came back normal, but he is still not feeling well....it's just not fair - a happy two year old shouldn't be dealing with stomach pains and vomiting all the time!
We are on the wait and see course right now. He is taking Prevacid, but that seems to be causing him problems too, just like all the other medicine he has taken. I didn't think kids this young were supposed to need daily meds? I will continue to update, but it's amazing how strong he can be. I know that I don't deal as well with situations like this as he does!
During the month of May, purchase select eligible Kraft products and submit your receipts to receive a free Rachel Ray Reuseable Tote Bag from Everday with Rachel Ray!

Ok...so what did I do? I finally broke down and purchased a new computer, so I needed to clean up my mess of a desk! I had piles and piles of coupons, dating back to late September....some were expired, many were disorganized, and some were never filed. I was overwhelmed with it all, so I just grabbed the whole pile, emptied out all the file folders and tossed them all! I know I must be crazy, but I will start over next weekend and keep them organized (well at least filed by date).
I am not a couponer, never will be, but I like to hang onto the paper coupons just in case someone posts a really great deal or freebie that I just can't miss out on whether it will be donated or kept! To the couponer's out there, sorry, I just couldn't take the mess, I know there are some that would have scoured all the pages to find the perfect ones, but I just felt that going through them all would have taken more time than the money I would have saved and well there are other more important things in life....like easter egg hunts and rain storms!

Visit Baskin-Robbins® for 31 Cent Scoop Night on April 29 from 5pm - 10pm and help honor America’s firefighters with a $100,000 donation to the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC)National Junior Firefighter Program.

All I can say is Pink Bubblegum ice cream - here we come! Visit this Baskin-Robbins webpage to set up an e-mail or text message reminder!
I feel like I have been away for a long time...two days of travel and no easy internet access has made posting difficult! Luckily, most sales last until Sunday! Let me know if you find anything great...it seems like all the stores are closed here in North Texas on Sunday, so we will have to get our shopping done on Saturday this week! I haven't even had a chance to peruse the bloggy giveaways this week...have you found any great ones I shouldn't miss? Please let me know!
Update: Go here to print a coupon for a Free Signature Item with $10 purchase, so you can get 4 items free when you buy 3!
Wow! I've seen buy 3, get 1 free, but never buy 3, get 3 free...this looks like a great opportunity to stock up on signature items at Bath & Body Works through Easter Sunday!

No coupon is needed for this sale, just go to your local store or shop online! I have to say that this sounds like a better deal than the recent semi-annual sales! I think I may have to go shopping to just fill-in our gift closet with some great items(those neat things set aside for when something unexpected comes up!)!
